Some of the best flashlight jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14

As a jailbreaker, one of the things you may always find yourself doing is searching for new jailbreak tweaks to make your iPhone or iPad do more than it can out of the box, and that’s why we’re here to help.

In today’s roundup, we’ll be showcasing what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for augmenting the rear-facing LED flashlight feature of your jailbroken iOS or iPadOS 14 device so that you can always find what you’re looking for.

So without further ado, let’s jump right into this week’s list.

The best flashlight jailbreak tweaks for iOS & iPadOS 14

Amber – FREE

Your iPhone likely has two different colored LEDs on the back, including one amber LED and one white LED, both of which are used in tandem to generate the correct shade of light for the TrueTone flash system used during photography.

Normally, you can’t use the amber LED as a flashlight, but the Amber jailbreak tweak gives you the choice to decide which LED diode you use for illuminating your way, including what hue and intensity you want to have.

Indicators – FREE

Are you the type of person who forgets to turn off your LED flash from time to time? It may seem like an impossibility to most, but not really when you consider that the Sun is infinitely brighter than any LED on Earth. The LED flashlight is easily drowned out, sometimes resulting in a forgotten flashlight.

Indicators is a simple jailbreak tweak that adds a white indicator dot to the Status Bar whenever your rear-facing LED flash is turned on. The idea is that when you see the indicator, you’ll remember that your flashlight is turned on and remember to turn it off again. The dot is very similar to the likes of the camera and microphone privacy dots introduced in iOS not long ago.

SmartLight – FREE


Perhaps you want a different way to toggling your iPhone or iPad’s LED flashlight on or off besides using the software-centric features found on the Lock Screen or in Control Center. If this sounds like you, then SmartLight might be worth checking out.

SmartLight lets you access the LED flashlight by way of hardware buttons on your device. You can use the sleep/wake and/or volume up/volume down buttons to either turn SmartLight on or off or to adjust the brightness level of the flashlight when it’s turned on.

LockScreenHiddenButton – FREE

Maybe you’re here not because you use your iPhone’s rear-facing flashlight, but instead because you never do. If that’s the case, then perhaps you’d be better off without as many flashlight shortcuts as iOS comes with out of the box.

LockScreenHiddenButton is a free jailbreak tweak that removes the Camera and Flashlight Quick Action buttons from the Lock Screen, allowing you to rid yourself of an unsightly toggle button you probables never use if you never employ your flashlight.

FlashSound – FREE

If you’re interested in customizing your flashlight usage experience, then FlashSound might be right up your alley.

Just as the tweak’s name implies, FlashSound lets users customize the system sound that plays when you toggle your iPhone or iPad’s rear-facing LED flashlight on or off. Right out of the box, the tweak comes with a long list of sounds to choose from.

Tenmetsu – $0.89

Tenmetsu is a jailbreak tweak that lets the iPhone or iPad’s rear-facing LED flash operate more like that of a professional flashlight like those manufactured by Fenix or Nitecore.

It does this by adding features such as strobe mode, SOS mode, and timer mode, all of which give you the ability to do more than just illuminate your path with the LED flashlight.
